The story behind this Ford is a truly remarkable one. What most people do not understand about car guys is that all of us are modern day treasure hunters. That we continually hunt for that elusive and rare piece of machinery. This Ford has been a well kept secret for over a half a century. Only a select few knew of this Ford and not one of them was keen on giving up that information. This is how she was able to stay out of peering eyes, ow she was able to maintain her folklore. If you would like to read in detail about her background as well as how she came to be, lease feel free to scroll down and you will find many detailed photos, ideo, nd the piece that was done by Gears And Gals.
Outside of being a well kept secret, here is another fascinating aspect to this Ford which puts it in to a category of rarity all unto its own. While it is a 34, t was however built in late 1933. So for example, his Ford came from the factory with its original (which we still have) 33 Hood. In addition to this, t is also an all original sheet metal car. As of today, he sits on a very nice & comfortable riding Pete & Jakes frame. She has underwent a no expense spared, igh quality, rame off restoration. Here is a break down of what that restoration entailed:

The one & only 1934 Ford "Rocketeer"
This story begins over a half a century ago in 1955, hen a Farmer from Clinton Missouri decided to stick something away for his Grandson. His goal was simple, o insure that his Grandson would have something to help him along his journey as he traveled in to adulthood. So the Grandfather took his beloved 1934 Ford and locked it away in a small barn that was once used to house chickens. Unfortunately, he Grandson never took an interest in the Ford so she set, ocked away in captivity for the better part of its existence.
This is the Barn/building.
As you will see within the photos, he Grandfather was methodical in his approach. He hung the wheels & tires on the wall and placed the Ford on Sawhorses. Keeping it off the ground as well as out of the elements, eally preserved the body.
Within the last five years, he 34 has been through a very costly frame off restoration. Over 100k was spent during the course of the restoration. Here are just a few photos from that process:
Today, his is how you will find her!
This is the piece as well as center fold that was published in Gears And Gals. Enjoy!
